The Hawks are investigating at least 140 cases of children that were allegedly snatched from their parents on the pretext that the parents, who are poor, are drug users who pose a danger to their children.

An alleged “child trafficking ring” is operating in the town of Springs on Gauteng’s East Rand.

Over the past two years, Henry Harber – who runs a charity organisation called Wild Wild Guardians in Springs, 50km east of Johannesburg – has allegedly taken about 140 children away from their parents to “places of safety” – seemingly without parental consent.
